I was training at the Rodrigo Freitas BJJ gym in Hawthorne, CA during lunch time. I was late to class, since I'm on-call this week at work and I was working on an issue. I barely got in on the last lesson of the day, in which we were working on the one leg sacrifice throw to the arm bar transition. After that, I got to do live drills for two rounds on getting full guard, sacrifice throw, or sweep and preventing these attacks from the standing position. Then, I got to roll for two rounds.
I'm glad that I was able to make it to class, despite being really late. I still feel improvements in my game, thought process, and reactions. I'm rolling more with the higher belts, so I get to see more on what I need to work on in my game. I'm still catching myself thinking more with the higher belts, in which this slows me down during the rolls.
Powerlifting Training 2/14/19 - Squats
Tonight's training session was at the Gold's gym in West Covina, CA. Originally, I was suppose to work out at the 24 Hour Fitness Super Sport gym in Walnut, CA, but there was a power outage in the area, so I left with my kids when we got there. I guess that was a great thing, because I was able to get the power rack and weights that I needed for tonight's training. Also, the bar was significantly better than what I am used to training with. The warm ups and weights were off from what I normally train with, since they have 55lbs plates.
I missed training yesterday, since the gym was packed and I couldn't find parking. I wanted to work out later, but it would of disrupted my sleep and since I'm on-call, I didn't want to take any chances. At least I was rested up for tonight's session. It was a great training session, since my technique is improving, I was getting deeper in the hole, and I was using less lower back than normal.
